About the process

Mock interviews are an opportunity to practice the interview process for funding applications. A panel specific to your topic area will be assembled, and interview questions relating to your funding application will be asked. 

This is a great opportunity to present your project idea and gain feedback on your presentation and interview technique.

All interviews take place at the RPS London office, 66-68 East Smithfield.
